Sony has finally revealed the price and release date of the PlayStation 5. The standard version of the console that includes a disc drive will cost $499. The disc-less digital edition will cost $399.
The PS5 will be out on Nov. 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. The rest of the world will get the PS5 consoles on Nov. 19.
As you may have already noticed, the new Sony console is unlike any PlayStation consoles that have come before it in terms of design. The PS5 has a white shell — a first for PlayStation — with black insides and blue lighting. The console also boasts a curved design, which greatly differs from the Xbox Series X‘s more blocky appearance. Before you ask, yes, the PS5 can both stand and lie flat, so you can set it up based on your needs and space.
“The PS5 gameplay experience will be the same, so the choice is all yours,” said Sony in a blog post. “While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation.”
